~ Modern Getaway Retreat w/your very own private Hot Spring ~
WOW! Doesn't that sound pretty fantastic right about now!

...just bring out the icy lemonade and let me soak for the day

*sigh* Anyway... This was built following the floor plan below; and with using only 3 pieces of additional CC (which are included in the package - so you don't have to go shopping for anything!
Just relax, instead!) .

The three CC items are:
1) A brown recolor of the OFB windows/doors made by myself,
2) Lirunchik's low modern fence - which is used as the roof's trim/edge, and
3) The low ground cover palm from Castaway Stories. This was originally extracted by someone over at MATY, but then MeetMe2theRiver gathered all the CS stuff together, fixed everything, and repackaged it in one big DL called CS_AllOfTheThings (which I highly recommend you go and get!) However, for this house, I just used the one item, and it's just a plant, so I included it in the package file. If you follow the link to get the whole bundle - this is it's path: CS_AllOfTheThings_BuildBuy.rar\BuildMode_Plants\CS_plantButiaCapitata.

Please take a tour through the above pictures and see everything this house has to offer. The house is furnished and decorated - though there's always room to add more... Furniture/decos are all EAxis in-game stuff.

All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The telephone is by the bedroom doors. The front door is burglar alarmed. The stove and grill have smoke alarms.
Appliances include: a stove, refrigerator, trash chute, espresso machine, grill, and mini-fridge.

This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.

There is parking available for two vehicles: one in the garage, and one on the driveway.

Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it something after all:
I use these wallpapers/floors all the time (and the 'bundle' lives in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star.) If you have blank/unpapered walls, either substitute the wallpaper of your choice, or go get: Lifestyle Build Bundle - It's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY.

Lot Size: 2x3
Lot Price (furnished): $65,076

Standard mods I use that are not necessary nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Niol/Moi's Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Then, if it's a Bespoke Roof recolor - it will be THESE adjusted versions by The Llama Park/Tumblr that you see used in the pictures.
(However, what you get in the packaged file, will either be the plain EA roof or the straight, un-modified Bespoke roof from the set here on MTS2.)
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
BeosBoxBoy's no-red-pause-mod
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
I also use FRAPs to take in-game pictures, and PhotoShop to clean/collage said pictures.
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror - as per her policy, it's not used or included in this lot.
